Q. We had our second child, Andrew, on Nov 28th. He was due on Dec 31st, so was almost 5 weeks early. I realized, while in the hospital, that he is a preemie and has a little more growing to do before he’s where Alicyn was when she was born at 38 weeks. So I’m trying to adjust my expectations from the start so that I don’t get concerned when it’s not necessary. What are the differences that I should expect developmentally between either Alicyn and Andrew or Andrew and monthly milestones. Also, at what point should being a preemie not particularly have an impact?
